Planting up the rockery is making me feel that I ought to keep some sort of record of the changes I’m making in that area, so I am going to join in with Cathy’s meme of The Tuesday View. It probably won’t be every week, as I don’t think there will be enough changes, but as soon as there are any changes I will share them with you.
The view at the moment of the sunny side of the rockery, with the scree in front.
The Aubretia are still waiting to be planted, having shown them to you will make me get on and plant them.
I have to improve the soil at the top of the rockery and make sure that any excess water will drain away quite quickly on this, the sunny side.
There’s a bit of weeding to be done as well before I can improve the soil.
Heucheras are starting to grow their new foliage amongst all the flowers..
The Japanese Azalea makes a lovely splash of colour by the steps.
This is the shady side of the rockery. Prunus KoJo no mai has grown taller than I thought it would but there are quite a few plants that like the conditions this side.
This is where I’m up to with the tidying, there is such a lot of ivy to be removed here, before I can plant more.shade loving plants.
Earlier this year I planted cyclamen coum under the shrubs and they will soon be joined by some wild snowdrops when I split my larger clumps. This means that there should be interest from January onwards in this area. Lots of bulbs have already flowered, so now I’m having to think of what would like to live here for the summer and autumn.
Thank you Cathy for hosting this meme, I will join in whenever there are any changes to show you.
